Im sure plenty of you play CS:S and Day of defeat.

The age old talk about "rate hacking" or slowing down the time it takes for your packets to come in can make you pretty hard to hit, but still allows you to return fire and kill them.

Is that a fair discription of it?

Its not somethign that really bothers me too much, as some people can never play fairly and always do what ever they can to get the upperhand.

I just want to know for sure if what i wrote above is true, slightly true or completely untrue.

Anyway it was 1 nasty bloke that was almost impossible to hit even when stationary, and yeah im not missing that much im pretty good at DOD so dont tell me that i cant aim :O lol. THe other 7 people on his team seemed to die fast enough.

SO when i said a sly, "get some rates" comment he replied no i play better like this...... grrrrr anyway! ill get over it :)

heh, good old rates. Being an admin was fun, nearly everyone, say 80% has odd rates. Quick admin bind to set everyone to 20k 100 100 and all the huff was sorted.

Best advice? Keep yourself to the norm rates, play on a good server thats admined properly. Only way around it :)

I as I under stand it having low rates makes you miss as much as it makes peope miss you, how ever if your playing style is to run in with the p90 spraying some of the bullets will get through, where as the other guy might go for a 2 bullet head shot and hit nothing.
